They just won’t sit still for me. I pick up the camera and they vanish. I sometimes wonder if there really were any birds or I’m just imagining them. Since all the food disappears daily, there must be something eating it, right? Fur and feathers, there’s a lot of eating going on.

This is a picture which deserves a clever caption. I couldn’t think of one.

It’s a Goldfinch and (I think though it’s hard to tell from the back) a Tufted Titmouse. The grey bird is too small to be a catbird who is the only other grey bird around here. It also shows you how small Goldfinches are since Titmouses are also small.

I was just out back with the camera. Not a bird in sight. That doesn’t mean there won’t be a slew of them around at dinner time, but they have learned to find food in the woods, which I wanted them to do. It has interfered with my photography plans, but it’s good they remember how to find food without my giving it to them.

  1. Rose fills our feeder up every day and
    the next day it’s empty.
    Maybe we need a bigger feeder?


  2. The Goldfinches are just so pretty, Marilyn.


  3. “Who are you, eating my food?!”
